I have been making beaded jewelry since 1992. It began in Minnesota with seed beads and fishing line with bracelets, necklaces, and earrings for my family and myself. (My dad still has the bracelet I made him!) A year later, a friend showed me how to make beaded amulet bags using an off-loom technique. I was hooked! I spent hours buying beads, and creating little purses. I started to sell them, because really, does anyone need 15 beaded bags? And so, after many years/bead stores later, I'm living in Boston, looking for ways to support my beading habit. My hope is that you will enjoy wearing what I enjoy creating!
